If your doll’s shoes have gone missing in the past few months, look no further, the doll foot fetish lurking in  jewelry designer Tom Binns must have swiped them to make this immaculate piece of jewelry! Seriously, that’s a lot of barefoot Barbies. Good thing Barbie can’t get pregnant… or CAN she? Anywho, Moss Online offers this for sale but the price is available upon request. Usually, they say ‘price available upon request’ when they know that you’re gonna shoot them a ‘b*tch please ‘ side-eye  after finding out the price. I say just go to your neighborhood playground and start gathering lost doll shoes, then string it all together and throw it around your neck. Voila! And if it kid cries for her doll’s shoe, tell her that Cinderella story, but stop before the part where she gets the shoe back…. yeah, that’s the ticket.

LunaBlocks has taken a childhood delight and made it into an interior decorator’s nightmare! Seriously, every interior decorator I meet wants to transform every place into a Z Gallerie showroom. Ugh. The best part of these blocks is that you can make your own combinations to make the furniture of your childhood dreams! Each brick is about $20, so it’s not that cheap, but still well worth it if you have a passion for Legos. I like the tables the best and I would make all the bricks pink and black for a Barbie boudoir effect!

Go ahead and cut yourself for a good cause (Note to cutters: DON’T DO IT , MAN!) because Cynthia Rowley has designed this really chic band-aids where proceeds go to Design Ignites Change. I went through a phase where I wore band-aids as a fashion statement. No, I wasn’t a toddler.. it was only a few years ago, sadly. But, I wore leopard, Barbie, Hello Kitty, bacon (!) band aids so it’s not all bad. The sequined band-aid has captured my heart, as well as the jewel band-aids (naturally, in pink). Those could have been  a part of Tom Binns collection a while back, actually. These run $10, by the way.

The poufy hair, the skinny pants, the bows , the ruffles… THE PINK! Oh, Behave! I’ll take ten of each please, in case one is in the wash. John Galliano did it again! It’s like Paris meets Austin Powers on a delicate spring day! I used to wear my hair like that about ten years ago before Snookie and Bumpits. I used this plastic coil that looked like a rabid squirrel’s tail to achieve ‘the pouf’. I always had a suspicious eye out for a menacing squirrel whenever I passed by a tree whenever I rocked ‘the pouf’. Enough about me. Galliano must have been playing with his Barbies (you know he does) while watching Paris …When it Sizzles” …or he had a “Nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea”?? I still love it!

Designer Margaux Lange woke up one day and decided to dismember her Barbies and wear them as adornments around her body. Gotta love Marge! This totally reminds me of when I was a youngster and would tear apart Barbies as if I were cannibal preparing for the night’s feast or as if  I were Lauren Conrad and the Barbie was Heidi Montag. Anyway, I love this however, because I’m a twisted soul, I would dab a bit of red nail polish around the the limbs. You know, for a bit of horror. These pieces are around $100-$150 at her Etsy store.

Before I say anything, that is some serious hair! I bet it feels cozy being under that hair, like when we made forts out of bedsheets draped over the couches, anchored by stuffed animals when we were four. My fort was fancy, though. I used pipe cleaners and play-dough as a makeshift chandelier. And I had my tortured Barbies as my ladies in waiting. Anyway…Junya Wantanbe is notorious for bringing on the fupe. Usually, when you enter fupe territory, you also enter FUG territory. However, this collection was more FUG than fupe. It looked like remnants of  costumes from Destiny Child’s ‘Survivor‘ video circa 2001- hair weave and all. Can you believe that was 10 years ago? I think it’s time I switched to Sanka and tapioca.

Happy April Fools!

dzn_westminster-chiming-grandfather-clock-by-ryan-mc-elhinney-2 ryan-mcelhinney ryan_new-2-2

British designer,  Ryan McElhinney , made this Grandfather clock that chimes every 15 minutes for a client in Dubai. All I can picture is some oil sheik playing with He-man and Skeletor figurines while a harem of ladies are rolling their eyes and snapping their gum. Anyway, this masterpiece is covered in white  (I’m surprised it’s not in gold) paint and takes six weeks to make. Check out Ryan’s site for more cool stuff he made with toys, including a floor lamp and picture frame. If I had some cash to burn, I would have him make a naked Barbie grandfather clock in pink. That would be stellar!!
